Glad to have completed my 4th challenge in 4 years. This time the 50 mile Lakes in a day ultra race. After the huge amount of descending of Blencathra, Helvellyn, and Fairfield the agony in my thighs kicked in and food stops became longer and longer. Running was down to short bursts on the few bits of flat and it had now got dark. Finished though just before midnight in just under 16 hours. Then I sat down seized up and remembered I had the agony of getting to my tent half a mile away. But enjoyed almost every minute of it.
